Include Me Out

Robert Service

I grabbed the new Who's Who to see
                        My name - but it was not.
Said I: "The form they posted me
                        I filled and sent - so what?"

I searched the essies," dour with doubt . . .
                        Darn! It was plain as day
The scurvy knaves had left me out . . .
                        Oh was I mad? I'll say.

Then all at once I sensed the clue;
                        'Twas simple, you'll allow . . .
The book I held was Who WAS Who -
                        Oh was I glad - and how!
